How to Check a Walmart Prescription Online

By Pamela Gardapee

If you use Walmart's pharmacy for your prescriptions, you can set the number of refills on each prescription, the date each prescription was last refilled, the cost you paid for the medication and when the prescription refills expire. While you are looking at your history with Walmart's pharmacy, you can order a refill, set refill reminders and view your ordering history.

Step 1

Navigate to walmart.com. Scroll down to the bottom of the page. Click "Store Finder." Enter your zip code and click "Find." A list of stores will appear in your area. Find the store address that you use for your prescriptions. Make a note of the store number. You will need this number when you sign up for your Walmart online account. Go back to the home page.

Step 2

Click "Pharmacy" from the menu in the left-side panel. From the drop-down menu, select, "Create a Pharmacy Account Online."

Step 3

Set up a new account. You will see a set of instructions on how to create an account. After reading, click "Get Started" toward the bottom of the page. Enter the information asked for and follow the prompts. You will also be asked to enter your store number. When you have completed the sign-up process, you are ready to check your prescriptions.

Step 4

Navigate back to the Walmart home page. Click "Pharmacy" from the menu on the left side. Click "Refill Prescription" from the drop-down menu. The next page will ask you for your birthday or the answer to your security question. Enter the answer and click "Submit."

Step 5

Wait for the page to change. You will see your currently active prescriptions. The tabs at the top of the summary allow you to manage your prescriptions online.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you shop from Walmart online and have an account already, you don't need to create a new account. You simply sign into your online account, click "Pharmacy," click "Refill Prescription" from the drop down menu, fill in your birth date and click "Submit."
  • Manage any children's or another adult's accounts by creating a separate account for each child or adult.
